Daniels in Babylon
I remember as a kid beginning to see in the Spirit political tactics of the enemy to come against our nation to push for socialism/communism in America and eventually a one world government. I always said that I could not understand how people would be deceived into following the antichrist and a one world government. When you look at the wave of deception in the world today, it is crystal clear. While this world is paving way to follow the antichrist, it is also ripe for he greatest awakening to prepare for the coming of the Lord 🔥
When I was old enough to learn more about American history and the Constitution, plus seeing the moral decay of the nation, I began talking about how the enemy would come in to deceive people by taking away their rights in the name of "freedom." The government would say, "We will take care of you," but it would be for their control over you, NOT for your protection as they say. They would offer "free" things here and "free" things there not because they care about you, but in order to dominate you.
I also began talking about government censorship against Christians in late elementary school and middle school of how the government would attempt to persecute those that spoke the truth. After learning about the birds and the bees, I knew one day politicians, society, and apostate churches would push to imprison or fine anyone that spoke against sin, abortions, stood up against corrupt government, "offended" anyone, or preached against homosexuality. Here we are.
I also saw the enemy coming to deceive people gradually with many different tactics, namely through lukewarm churches teaching half-truths, the media, politics, and Hollywood content. Think back to even the 90's with its bad content on TV compared to the violence, sexual perversion, witchcraft, and language today. Every few years more lawlessness becomes widely accepted as the norm. It is the progression of accepting more and more darkness that has caused a falling away from the Lord and a society ran by wickedness. Darkness cannot coexist with the Light of God in your heart. You either love him or love the things of the world. Darkness will come as "good" and as "light," but do not be deceived by its root of sin and rotten fruit of lawlessness.
Here I am at almost 28 years old beginning to "see" the things I "saw" 20 years ago. You cannot ride the fence anymore. You must make up your mind and choose this day which God you will serve because everything that can be shaken will be shaken and must be shaken.
Yes, persecution will happen. Yes, the greatest move of God is beginning to happen now. Apostasy and awakening will go hand in hand.
It's not popular to say, but I have to say the word of the Lord: God will not bless rebellion. Rebellion against God will keep you in the wilderness, missing your promotions, and away from intimacy with Him. However, repentance of sin, complacency and all forms of rebellion will shut all access of the enemy (robbing, curses, etc.) that you have allowed in your life.
An army of Daniels is rising. These are those that live in Babylon but have refused to bow their knee to the lawless decrees of Nebuchadnezzar. You are not afraid of being thrown into the king's fiery furnace because you were born in the Refiner's fiery furnace! You will come out unsinged and walk in terrifying acts, miracles, and awesome wonders of the Lord and give counsel to the kings of the earth. You will govern from different mountains of influence as manifest sons of God. You will dream dreams, interpret the mysteries of heaven, and see into the glory realms upon glory realms of the Lord!
